According to an insider source who confided in RegentAfrica Times, the financial giant named Yemisi Edun as the acting Managing Director, in a bid to fill the void left by the embattled former Managing Director, Adam Nuru. over the unethical conduct allegations.

This is after the bank had assured customers and stakeholders that it is currently reviewing what transpired.
In lieu of this, the bank announced Yemisi Edun to temporarily fill the void, subject to regulatory approvals, which will be subsequently announced in the coming days.
